Brilliance LEDs last up to 120,000 hours and will not need to be replaced for the life of the device. Use of LEDs has minimized maintenance requirements as they require replacement every 10 years compared to other common phototherapy devices that use compact fluorescent light bulbs that require replacement every 3-5 months.
Manufacturer specified performance targets include: able to operate in areas of unreliable power supply, low cost, easy to use, portable.
During tests at Stanford University School of Medicine, Brilliance outperformed state-of-the-art phototherapy devices (that often cost upwards of $3,000 USD). Brilliance was also found to meet American Academy of Pediatrics standards for effective jaundice treatment Brilliance received CE mark in October 2013, certifying that the product meets European Union standards for safety and quality.
Error in obtaining the proper distance between the patient and the phototherapy device can result in under or over dose to the patient. The device has a built-in over temperature cut off to maintain safe temperatures.
